progeEARTH Land Development Suite

progeEARTH

This Survey, Cogo, DTM, and Road Design software, used with progeCAD® Professional, provides a low-cost alternative to otherwise high priced Land survey, coordinate geometry, digital terrain modeling, and corridor design software including working directly with AutoCAD DWG files, without having to pay a fortune to do so.

Familiarity of AutoCAD

progeEARTH allows you to use the commands and menus you are used to, the same ones you would find in AutoCAD, and supports the same fonts, hatch patterns, model space/paper space, most of the features to have relied on in the past. The software costs a fraction of the price you would pay for an AutoCAD solution.

Perfect for Surveyors, Civil Engineers, Architects...

This software is ideal for Professional Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers who need an economical software solution. It also provides a low-cost way for Architects to communicate their data to the Engineer.

This Survey, Cogo, DTM, and Road Design software provides a total solution for importing your point data from data collector files, manual point entry, point manipulation, lot design and annotation, contours, digital terrain models, profiles, cross sections and corridor design.

progeEARTH: Survey and Cogo

progeEARTH

Unleash the power of or progeCAD® Professional with this Affordable Survey & Cogo software! Traverse and Label, Closure Reporting and our Utilities are included in the Survey and Cogo package. Other optional modules include DTM, and Road Design. Survey and Cogo is an add-on program for progeCAD® Professional. You will need progeCAD® to run this program.


Set Points


Set points by entering Northing & Eastings or pick a point. (if you pick a point on a 3D object, the elevation will be used for the point). You may also set points by entering a station and offset.

Automatic Symbols


Whenever you add points to the drawing a user definable block can also be placed there automatically, such as an iron pipe or a power pole etc. Linework may also be imported from field codes.

Point Protection


Complete point protection gives you the choice of overwriting existing points or renumbering points as they are imported.

Boundary Traverse and Sideshot


Set points using a boundary traverse or sideshot with turned angle, North azimuth or South azimuth (use vertical angle or difference in elevation).

Radial Stakeout


Select the points you need for a radial stakeout. Create a radial stakeout report using Turned Angle or North or South Azimuth.

Inverse Points


Inverse points by entering the point number.

Intersections


Find intersections by Bearing - Bearing, Bearing - Distance, Az - Az, Az - Distance, Distance - Distance, Line - Arc, and Point offset to a line.

Import/Export


Import points from an ascii file or export points to an ascii file. A file is created with Point Number, Northing, Easting, Elevation and Description. You may also create a Point List for viewing in the same format.

Manipulate Points

You may manipulate points in the drawing by moving or rotating them, you may change the elevation of a group of points, you may resize existing points in the drawing and you may also pivot the points about their placement point.

Labels

You may label the bearing (or North or South Azimuth) and distance of a line by selecting it or by picking points. You may:
label a curve (radius, length) or (delta, radius, tangent, length and chord bearing & length) by selecting it or by picking points.
Label coordinates by picking a point.
Label areas by selecting a closed polyline.
Label station and offset from an alignment (line, polyline or arc).

Bearing and Distance Listing

You may list the bearing and distance of a line by selecting it.
You may list a curve (delta, radius, tangent, length and chord bearing & length) by selecting it.

Compute Areas

You may let the program automatically compute lot areas by Slide Bearing or Radial methods.

Drafting Utilities

To help you in creating your drawing, we offer a collection of drafting aids. You may import a text file, insert a graphic scale or place crowsfeet on a line. You may Label stations on an alignment, create a profile coordinate system, label elevations by picking and extract a profile from 3d faces or from 3D lines. You may place text in a line or find and replace text in the drawing.

progeEARTH: Traverse and Label

progeEARTH

Traverse and Label allows you to draw a traverse using Bearing and Distances. You may also enter curves to the left or right (Radius and Arc length). You may also label any lines in the drawing by bearing and distance and curves by radius and arc length.

Closure Reports

Print a detailed traverse and closure report using Bearings or Azimuths describing each leg of the traverse along with the area and error of closure.

Digital Terrain Modeling

progeEARTH

Create a Triangulated Irregular Network. Use fault lines to control model. Create contours at user defined intervals. Calculate volumes. Unlimited number of surfaces. Create fully annotated profiles.


Create a TIN

Create a Triangular Irregular Network of a set of points. Any point file in the xyz format can be used to create a surface model. Fault lines may be added to the model to control the triangulation process. Boundaries and voids may also be used to control the appearance of the model.

Contours

Contours may be created at user defined intervals and placed on user defined layers.

Mesh Creation

A mesh may be created of the surface.

Calculate Cut and Fill

Volume calculations may be made between two surfaces.

Unlimited Surfaces

Create an unlimited number of surfaces.

DTM Profile Cutter

Select a polyline alignment and cut a profile from the surface. The profile may then be imported into a drawing. The program places a grid around the profile and annotates stations and existing ground elevations on a user defined interval. You may overlay the existing profile with a new profile cut from a modified surface model.


Road Design

Profiles and Cross Sections

Cut profiles and cross sections at user defined intervals along an alignment.

Proposed Profiles

Define and display proposed profiles along with vertical curves.

Road Templates

Define and apply roadway templates to the cross sections.

Ditches

Place ditches by elevation or depth.

Backslopes

Define backslopes or pin to an offset.

Cut and Fill Calculations

Calculate cut and fill volumes based on average end areas.

Section Tools

progeEARTH

To help you in creating your drawing, we offer a collection of drafting aids. You may insert a graphic scale or place crowsfeet on a line. You may Label stations on an alignment, create a profile coordinate system, label profile elevations by picking and extract a profile from 3d faces or from 3D lines.


Drafting on Sections or Profiles

With Design Section Tools you can draw, offset and label lines using different horizontal and vertical scales. The perfect solution for working on cross sections, typical sections and profiles.

Multiple Entry Methods

You may draw by entering the slope (3:1), ft./ft. (0.2), %grade (0.5), or Station and Elevation. Create a profile coordinate system and draw ground lines and sewer lines. Pick points on plan view for stationing (or type in station) and enter the elevation. Place and label a manhole by station and elevation, construct an offset using the vertical scale, all with Design Section Tools.

Labeling

Select a line or polyline and Design Section Tools will label the slope (3:1), ft./ft. (0.0156'/ft), or %grade (0.05%). Pick a point and label a Station and Elevation, or just an Elevation. Place a manhole and Design Section Tools will label the station, rim elevation, and up to three invert elevations.

Place structures

With Sewer Profiles you can place inlets, inlet manholes and manholes on your plan drawing by station and offset, using user definable blocks. Sewer Profiles then places a data block allowing you to enter important information about the structure (such as rim and invert elevations). Data blocks may be placed on any structure whether existing or proposed.

Automatic Profiles

Sewer Profiles are drawn automatically on your profile drawing. Just select the structures that you want to use to create a profile and Sewer Profiles does the rest. A sewer profile with structures annotated, inverts labeled, and pipe lengths and grades calculated and labeled automatically.

Automatic Plan Notes

Plan notes may also be created from selected structures. A note containing the structure call out, station & offset, rim elevation (or E.P. elevation for inlets), and invert of structure is written automatically and placed where you choose.
